Global biotechnology company Life Technologies has launched India’s first private DNA forensics laboratory, which is expected to accelerate sampling process and thereby reduce the burden on existing forensic laboratories.
 
Currently, there are 28 laboratories for forensic DNA investigation and testing in the country. But many of them are overburdened with cases and have sample backlogs.
 
Until the beginning of 2013, there was a backlog of 862 crime cases in the DNA division of the Delhi State Forensic Science Laboratory alone.
 
The lab is equipped with advanced DNA testing systems and will facilitate a broad range of DNA testing including paternity testing, kinship testing, DNA profiling for database generation, and forensic DNA analysis.
 
The Life Forensics Laboratory will meet international standards for DNA testing.
